Focus Comic received a really warm welcome in Texas, Greater Austin last month.
We had a successful community outreach event where the sole creator Yvonne Wan, main artist Douglas Hebert and autistic intern Tabidi met the general public at Greater Austin Comic con and Titan Moon Comics Store.
We would like to say thanks to all the artists/colorists who contributed to our comic. Thank you to the general public for showing their support.
We would also like to thank Office Depot for giving our interns their own cover, and for sponsoring the community coloring competition. We would also like to thank Spring Hill Suites by Marriott in Cedar Park, Kevin Eastman Creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Strathmore and Office Depot for donating prizes. We would also like to thank Blick for donating art supplies. Our team and general public enjoyed using them at the show. We also like to say thanks and Durable Office Products for donating 2 display cases to help us raise autism awareness. The display cases were really helpful in allowing us to showcase our art work.
We also thank Greater Austin Comicon and Spring Hill Suites Cedar Park for providing hotel accommodation whilst we did valuable social work in Greater Austin. We had a great stay at Spring Hill Suites in Cedar Park, where we were able relax, rest, coach our intern Tabidi and prepare for our Focus Comic Panel with our goodwill ambassador Tony Todd. This was our autistic intern’s first ever stay at a hotel and it was a great experience for him and the team.
